the stove pipes are down, intelligence is red teamed, the fbi now has a national security branch, staffed by 10,000 people. i mean how could it be that people were learning how to fly planes and not land. these were the kinds of things they would look out for. and as bob mueller said in open session to us, we've had 20 attempts at the last year and every one of them has been stopped. i think that's good news. so we have learned. we have a counterterrorism center that specializes now in threats to the homeland. we have a director of national intelligence to provide coordination over the 16 different intelligence agencies. no longer are they their own spheres, they're part of a network. there have been changes and we have learned hard lessons. >> how important is the killing yesterday in yemen of the second in command al qaeda's second in command, al shirry. >> that hasn't been confirmed to the best of my knowledge. i don't know whether he is dead or not. but if he is, it's certain lay positive thing. over half of the al qaeda leadership has been taken out. the problem is, that they're repl
as the administration had said. what do you say to that? >> well, i think the evidence is still out. the fbi has just arrived. they'll do a full investigation. we'll learn a lot more later. this was coming up on september 11th. september 11, of course, is a very symbolic date throughout the world, and zawahiri who succeeded osama bin laden as leader of the al qaeda had a couple of weeks ago a call, sent a message out to the libyan people asking them to avenge the death of the number three in al qaeda that we killed with a drone in july. there are all these signs out there. we're going to have terrorist events in the future. was this premeditated? well, we'll find out. it was certainly a tense period. sdwr. >> it sounds like i'm hearing you saying that more could have been done. do you think the administration did enough to protect our men and women overseas? >> as a diplomat overseas i think they've done a great deal. sometimes you can do too much. it's a delicate balance and allowing our diplomats to get out and speak and communicate with the people and do our jobs or keeping us all locked up, i thi
for essential personnel. and the fbi not yet able to get into benghazi where the u.s. wants to know exactly what happened, who was behind the deaths of our ambassador and three other u.s. state department employees there. susan rice, the u.n. ambassador, said they had no warning of an imminent attack but extremists with weapons readily available in libya just showed up at these demonstrations. that's not what we're hearing from the libyan national congress. the head of that says this is a well-planned attack. foreigners who came into libya for months had planned this attack. meantime in afghanistan, as you mentioned, we've had two attacks with six u.s. soldiers killed. those so-called insider attacks, because they're believed to have been perpetrated by the very afghan forces we're supposed to be training. laura. >> very interesting. thank you. >>> new this morning, time to talk a little baseball. the a's have 16 games left in the regular season. they currently sit atop the american league wild card race, but that's good news, hardly a guarantee for a playoff spot but it's not stopping the team
to libya and three others? >> yeah. it's difficult to say because the fbi is over there. but it's hard to carry out an investigation on the ground right now. that is such a -- libya itself is confusing. that benghazi area is one of the most confusing of all. it's an al qaeda stronghold out there. there's also al sharia which is basically a conglomeration of jihadist paramilitaries. i can't tell you with any real certainty how accurate these investigations are. a lot of people have been picked up by the libyan authorities. how guilty they really are, i don't know. we're still in the fog of war. we're in an area where we don't have that many assets on the ground. we have a libyan government which i think actually to give them credit, i think the libyan government itself is trying to work with us. unlike president morsi in egypt, libyans are trying. but it's a very new government. it's ineffective government. out in benghazi there's virtually no security. we're talking about a consulate which had, again, virtually no security. there were no military back-ups for our ambassador out there.
counterterrorism center, the fbi come in the very charged with attacking our nation from terrorism and other disasters will be flashed in an indiscriminate way that it are signs were more potentially harming such vital programs as border security, intelligence analysis and the fbi's work. i have time and budget constraints require everyone to sacrifice and priorities to be sat and ways to be eliminated, we should ask where resources can be spent more effectively and what trade-offs should be made to balance the risk we face with the security we can afford. but we cannot afford, however is to weaken a homeland security structure that is helping to protect the citizens of this country. thank you, mr. chairman. >> thank you, secretary collins. secretary napolitano correct thank you for being with us through at the time through >> thank you through lieberman through like to thank director olson further partnership. mr. chairman, this is my 17th appearance before you. is my 44th here in overall since becoming president. i'm grateful for the tireless advocacy on behalf of dhs, not only during its
just last friday. the fbi says adel daoud was intent on killing as many americans as possible. according to the criminal complaint, the 18-year-old from hillside illinois drove a green jeep cherokee full of what he thought was explosives to a downtown chicago nightclub and then attempted to detonate it. the teenager first came to the fbi's attention in 2011 when he sent e-mails sympathizing with bin laden, writing in one that osama wasn't crazy for wanting to destroy america. eventually court papers say daoud met with an undercover agent posing as an extremist. he picked the unnamed nightclub from google maps and allegedly told the agent he wanted the attack to be massive enough to make it in the news, like tonight. authorities say daoud was bent on terrorism, vowing repeatedly that it was in his heart. >> we're going to see more and more examples of this type of self-radicalization. this is the new wave in the terrorist threat, but it doesn't mean it's a threat that we can't deal with. >> a kid that i know, adel is an angel. he helped me -- my husband was away, and he helped
for operations at our consulate in benghazi. as the fbi refines its search there are new questions as to what egyptian security forces were doing while the attack on the egyptian embassy was in motion and what the libyans were doing wet attack there was taking place. libyan officials say u.s. ambassador christopher stevens and sean smith were killed in the first attack in benghazi. a navy seal was killed and 30 other people were wounded. >> reporter: within the last hour hour the state department confirming the investigation is being led with by libyan authorities. the state department remains cautious wit comes to assigning blame. >> as we said yesterday when we were on background, we are very cautious withdrawing any conclusions with regard to who the perpetrators were, what their motivations were, whether it was premeditated. whether they had extern contacts, whether there was any link until we have a chance to investigate. report report attacks benghazi are described by the head of the house intelligence committee as a premeditated attack. ansar al-sharia wants to restrict adherence to sh

the benghazi attack is totally off limits for west? this is something you need to talk to the. fbi about knot us about because it is their investigation, nuland said. ambassador susan rice appearing about all five sunday shows did not appear bound by the new rules. her comments around the benghazi attack diverted sharply from what senior libyan officials have been saying. >> the best information and best assessment we have today is that in fact this was not a preplanned, premeditated attack. what happened initially, it was a spontaneous reaction to what had transpired in cairo as a consequence of the video, that people gathered outside the embassy and then it grew very violent. those with extremist ties joined the fray and came with heavy weapons. >> the way these perpetrators acted and moved, i think we, their choosing their specific date for this so-called demonstration, i think we have no, this leaves us with no doubt that this is preplanned, predetermined. >> reporter: rice added that the situation around our embassies has been quote, somewhat better since friday but she added there is no
and keep going at it. no one believes it because it's not true. >> how can he he know that? fbi teams are just arriving in libya. the investigation is underway. we know that they were armed -- the attackers at least in lib afterthe embassy were armed with rocket propelled grenades, you pick those up as you are heading toward the protest? >> you are exactly right. the white house has a handle on the intent of the attackers? they have no clue. common sense tells you it's bigger than a video. >> the problem is it goes to the rationale of the obama candidacy four years ago which was total condemnation of the bush policy. total condemnation of our position, especially in the muslim world. so the president, president obama preached empathy, preached an association based on his past and his education and based upon where he grew up and said, listen, i understand you. now the muslim world has rejected it and, in some ways, rejecting not only america but the obama presidential handout. >> that is certainly charles krauthammer's theory. he was on "special report" last night. >> this has nothing

facilities, i would refer you to the state department. >> separate from the fbi investigation you mentioned a few moments ago, is there any sort of inquiry going on here at the white house among the president's national security team to get to the bottom of, you told the american people on september 10th we've taken steps to protect americans here at homeland and abroad, obviously with four americans tragically being killed, the steps were not good enough. is there an inquiry going on here to figure out what went wrong? >> you're conveniently -- motivation behind them will be decided by that investigation. >> what carney did do there is sidestep the specific question whether or not there was some kind of inquiry into someone potentially dropping the ball here. instead he talked broadly about the overall investigation into the violence there in libya, joe. >> dan, stay with us. i want to bring in arwa damon in benghazi. she's on the phone. and cnn foreign affairs reporter elise labott at the state department. arwa, first to you. you've been talking to libyan officials. what's the latest on w
